Hi – My name is Bart Castle and I’ve been creating art and music for as long as I can remember. In high school DaVinci wowed me with his ability to meld science, math, and art. I loved Albrecht Durer’s wood cuts and etchings. I’m also a big fan of Gary Larson and his Far Side comics…and many other influences…

My family and I live in Asheville, NC and it has been a wonderful change for us. This community we are living in supports artists, musicians, and free-thinkers at every turn. I’m currently an active member in the Zapow! Gallery where i sell my music instrument, dinosaur, and whimsical artwork.

Dinosaur Christmas Art anyone?

In progress - Cavern of the Dragon-tongued Tendrils - part 1

This was a piece that I did the watercolor work on a few weeks ago and am just now getting around to the ink work. The piece is highly experimental and interpretive so I won’t talk to much about it also I’m largely making this one up as I go… / The background colors are guiding me here. I am feeling like the green areas will transition from the carved stone work into plant-esque…

In Progress - Guitar Notes Commission - Part II

This is the second part of the SG200 Electric Guitar picture in my Crazy Notes Series which is being done as a commission for a fan here in Oregon. / Started on the headstock outlines and working on the tuners. / Headstock is pretty much wrapped up.
